    in the same steel Aogami super my choice would be : http://www.knivesandstones.com/syous...g-by-kurosaki/ I have the 270 suji and its an awesome knife, Marc one of the members here can attest to what a great knife this is.

    also there is this : http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...super-wa-gyuto

    but sold out at the moment.

    The website not to be named bought out the last of the Hiromotos, but seem to not to have any left? they have another option as well

    See the new Syogeki series. Like the Hiromoto, Aogami Super core with stainless cladding. Micarta handle and an excellent Fit&Finish.

    yeah... not sure why this is here, but hopefully we can get it moved to a more visible area on the site that might work better for the purposes of this thread

    no worries... lets let the mods move it, as thats probably easier than reposting at this point, but this would be a better area:
